Compressor runs all the time

Hello, Suddenly (while running) the compressor on this unit runs all the time-does not cycle in and out-even when the power is turned off on the panel--lights on unit and fan are off but the compressor keeps running--power must be cut to the unit to shut it down completely--this unit has already had the circuit board control panel replaced (different symptom) ?I suspect that this unit may have control panel board problems in general?is this correct? I am suspecting the circuit board control panel again or maybe some sort of relay switch?any help is greatly appreciated?I can e-mail pics of inside of unit to assist in any parts ID that may need replacement. Thanks, Ben III 863-683-2054

    The above poster is correct about the relay--replace the board--take a photo of the connections first--not too hard of a job.

Until now this unit has never had the compressor run without the fan. Is the compressor running without the fan a problem? If so, what can I do to correct it?

Possibly a tstat issue. Run system until satisfied, once satisfied indoor fan shuts down compressor still runs remove tstat face plate and see if compressor shuts down. Another issue could be a sticking contactor for compressor. With a meter you could check at the contactor to see if you lose your 24volts for cooling but contactor remains pulled in.

Hello awesome Fixya Experts! How do I disable the tones/alerts for my Whirlpool freezer (model WZF79R18DM00)?

There shouldn't be any 'jingly tone' at the end of every compressor cycle. You could be hearing something else making a sound after the compressor stops.

24ABR348A0031010 compressor starts then stops. Carrier 4 ton R22 unit. Worked great, then fan runs all the time. Compressor will start for less than a minute, then stop. Basically compressor will not stay...

Hello RR Hard start can't hurt BUT dosen't sound like the problem.Do you have a scroll compressor?They don't need a kit.Does it start every time?It could be short cycling on LOW PRESSURE SWITCH.If the unit is (pumping down) during the run time you have a restriction in the system.Make sure the service valves are open ,do you have a filter dryer colgging up or a bad TXV valve also could cause short run times.20-30 PSI the switch cuts out.

Freezer fan runs for hours

When compressor cycles off, your freezer fan should shut off as well !

Freezer fan should not be spinning while compressor off.

You might need a control board replacement, that controls fan.

If you are talking about compressor run time, that is a bit excessive, usual causes are dirty condensers but you say they are clean - are your condensers at the bottom of the unit ? If so make sure the condenser fan next to the compressor is running too, blowing air ont he condenser.

Kenmore AC compressor on and off while outside unit fan running

If the out door fan keeps running and the compressor cycles off that would be the overload in the compressor.
What keeps the windings cool is the refrigerant back to the compressor.
For the overload to cycle it would have to be either not enough cooling back to the compressor or high amp draw, which could be the metering device (txv or orifice) or low on charge, or other things would be a bad capacitor, sometimes a bad start relay not staying open, when compressor gets up to speed or anything causing the compressor to draw high amps.
To check the refrigerant, he needs to check the superheat at the compressor it should be appoximately 12° to15°, and next time the compressor goes off if you shut the power off and feel the top of the compressor and if it's hot 130° or higher it's probably refrigerant.

AC/Heatpump units cycle numerous times blowing ambient air.

If the compressor never kicks in, I would check the start capacitor, thermostat and the compressor windings. Most times the start capacitor is defective. Some window air conditioners the fan will run while the compressor stop through the thermostat switch. If the thermostat switch is bad every thing runs except the compressor. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

It is definitely with the compressor. It should more like you may have a weak winding in the compressor, you can a hard start capacitor (sp5 ) that will help the compressor on restart. Note that this is a last chance solution for a compressor.

Refridgerator compressor cycles on for 6 seconds then off for 1 minute

it sounds like a bad: 
  • ·       start switch (on the side of the compressor) or
  • ·        compressor itself

the start switch clicks  off usually when the compressor is pulling too many amps or the compressor is overheating. if the compressor is not even running then its probably not overheating.
·                                 so either the compressor is pulling too many amps (bad compressor) or the start switch is bad and cannot handle the amps required to start the compressor.

Compressor wont start

It is probably a failed run capacitor for the compressor. Without the capacitor, the motor can't even try to run, but it will draw extreamly high amperage until it trips the thermal overload (avarage trip time 5-10sec) after it has a few second for the safety to cool off, it will try again. Either that or the compressor truly is seized
